Action Item Review

  • Max - paint the switches bright so people can see them for shutdown

New Sign

  • Greg S. - Start sign committee, check back in July (info this mtg)
  • Looks like we are in the 25 Square feet arena,
  • That is about right, i am thinking mounting it over the overhead door, biggest problem is maintaining it if out has lighting
  • Some thoughts:
    • We have a logo, and that is our Identity, if we change it much on our sign do we change it on all things ???
    • The sign itself can be creative, but remember it has to be maintained.

  • Should it be canceled for the holiday?
  • Konrad will be out of town.
  • Whoever shows up will have a meeting, maybe things will even get done.

July 8th Board Meeting

  • Point of Contact: Konrad B
  • This meeting will coincide with the launch of Red Bull Creation.
  • We plan to have a "ground control" crew to aid our Red Bull team with ideation.
  • The commons area is likely to be the best location for this and it would conflict with a Board meeting.
  • The board meeting should be moved to a different date or canceled.
  • Tell your board if you have an opinion

Integrated Space Plan

(Nate B)

  • It's a cool poster we printed
  • Conceptual tool to map humanity's expansion into the cosmos

  • No use of group funds, just asking for a thumbs-up that this would be an appropriate use of the name and logo
